Broadsides exhibition
Atelier 6000 and The Nature of Words present Broadsides: A Juried Exhibition, with an opening reception on Nov. 2, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Broadsides throughout history have been one of the most popular printed formats. Printed on one side of a single sheet of paper, broadsides were ephemera used to inform the public about current news and events and celebrate literary efforts. Today broadside printing has become a fine art variant, combining the art of letterpress, calligraphy and hand drawn text with hand created images.
Cash awards will be given for first, second and third place. Winning broadsides will be published in the spring 2013 issue of High Desert Journal. All submissions are juried by Ellen Waterston, Clare Carpenter and Ron Schultz.
The deadline for entry is Oct. 5. Notifications of accepted artworks will be sent out via email by Oct. 12. Broadsides are due Oct. 25.
By submitting artwork, the artist agrees that images of selected artwork can be used by the gallery for promotions and publications. Submission of entry constitutes agreement to all conditions in this prospectus.

 Tell me a story
Innovation Theatre Works  in Bend has announced that its open mic storytelling series, the SpeakEasy, will begin again at 6 p.m. Sept. 23  in the intimate Balcony CafĂ©.
The SpeakEasy was first launched in 2010, giving anyone with a voice and a story to tell a place to do just that. The SpeakEasy was the brainchild of  Innovation Theatre Works Artistic Director Brad Hills while serving as the Artistic Director of the Washington Storytellers Theatre in Washington, D.C. Predating other storytelling series such as The Moth or Portland’s Back Fence, the SpeakEasy remains a staple of Washington culture after ten-plus years of existence.
The SpeakEasy features a different theme each month and all are invited to join in with a story based on that month’s theme. This month’s theme is School Daze: Stories about going back to school. Whether it’s a story about going back to school after summer vacation or returning after years of being away or a story about going back on Monday after a particularly momentous weekend, we want to hear them. Stories will be limited to seven minutes and storytellers may come prepared with a memorized story, read from a script or speak extemporaneously from memory. They can be your own personal experiences or those of another writer, published or not.
Storytellers may preregister  to reserve a spot or sign in at the door. Please call the theater at 541-504-6721 or e-mail brad@innovationtw.org if you would like to reserve your spot. Storytellers will be taken in the order reserved. The cost to attend is $5.
Innovation Theatre Works is located at 1155 S.W. Division St., in the Scandia Square. There is plenty of free parking available.
